Our friends over at Sony HQ must be at their whits end with all this Halo 3 talk, because they devilishly and secretly stuck it to the Halo franchise with a ::gasp:: Wikipedia revision! Using WikiScanner, it was discovered that an IP address originating out of Sony's UK studios edited the Wikipedia entry for "Halo series" dissing Halo 3's graphics. Sony's Wiki revision poked fun of the game's graphics by saying that they "wont look any better than Halo 2". Ouch Sony, just ouch. But don't worry Halo fanboys, because the Halo series wiki entry has since been corrected and set to a semi-locked status. Take that Halo haters!

But in all seriousness such Wikipedia revisions are quite common and aren't a huge deal. Although, when it comes to business, these types of online tactics are somewhat sophomoric and sad. Maybe Sony will learn from this and hire someone from outside their company to do their Halo 3 hating. Oh snap![/quote]

I'd love it if the newspapers caught wind of this and managed to blow it way out of proportion; yet another **** up in the Sony camp! More importantly though, is which dense twat put a capital after a comma? Edited by Samboini

We won't know how well it will turn out until it comes out on 9/25.

Personally I think the graphics do have a lot of detail on it compared to its predecessors, but it still stays relatively unchanged. The extra detail could be that higher resolution textures are now possible in Xbox 360.

[quote name='sony']Halo 3 also will have half the weapons and vehicles, and no dual wielding. It'll just be Halo 1. Please buy a PS3, please? Pretty please? We have Haze, its the same amount of letters. Oh and we have Blu Ray, which is basically the second coming of christ and you shoulden't listen to everyone that says HD-DVD will do better, because they're wrong and we're right.[/quote]

They know it was a Sony Employee because it came from an IP address for Sony UK.
I do think saying an entire company is responsible for the acts of what in essence could have been the mail room clerk is taking things a bit overboard...

[quote][b]LOL: SCEE caught red handed editing Wikipedia Halo 3 entry, insult graphics
[/b]
Uh oh, SCEE has been caught editing a Wikipedia entry on Halo 3. Sony added "Halo 3 won't look any better than Halo 2" to the entry, although the page has been corrected and locked from further alterations. The IP address which was uncovered by Wikipedia as editing the respective page is 217.18.23.2 and that goes straight back to SCEE's Liverpool studios.[/quote]

While funny, I wish there was this much news when Fox News people edited the wiki-entry of left-leaning commentators, or when Diebold did some wiki-edits.

Generally when you work for a company you are also acting as a representative of them, so in short, yes.
